Along with the release of its OS X 10.10 Yosemite operating system yesterday, Apple also turned loose iTunes 12.0.1 to the public.

The new version, a 212 megabyte download, now features a red icon, is “designed for OS X Yosemite” and according to AppleInsider, along with the usual performance boosts and bug fixes, brings a redesigned interface with translucent elements borrowed from Yosemite.

In addition, users can now activate Family Sharing, a feature that lets customers share music, e-book and app purchases with up to five family members. Family Sharing was introduced with iOS 8 and is now available through Yosemite.


Other tweaks include dedicated icons for music, movies and TV shows, a seamless browsing experience when switching between your library and the iTunes Store and the addition of a Recently Added category that aggregates all newly added content.

Finally, iTunes 12.0.1 features improved playlist editing with side-by-side content panes and improved Get Info windows.

iTunes 12.0.1 can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store or via Software Update and requires Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later to install and run.
